Mi­ami Vice

TV & Satellite Week - - Films Day-by-day -

5Star, 9pm/5star+1, 10pm

No pas­tel suits. No bikini-clad star­lets. No al­li­ga­tor named Elvis. This re-imag­in­ing by di­rec­tor Michael Mann of his slick 1980s TV se­ries turns the whole Mi­ami Vice con­cept into a hard-boiled po­lice pro­ce­dural thriller. With moody vi­su­als, in­tense ac­tion se­quences and a tar­nished sense of ro­mance, it is reck­lessly paced, in­tri­cately plot­ted and bru­tally ef­fec­tive as un­der­cover cops Crock­ett and Tubbs (Colin Far­rell and Jamie Foxx) are sec­onded into the FBI for a sting op­er­a­tion against a Colom­bian drug baron.2006, 15, 133MIN
